Today I would like you to have a look at the PPT on the invasion of the Vikings. We are going to try and do some map work to identify the 7 kingdoms of England ruled by the Anglo-Saxons in 793. Which kingdom would we have lived in?
Can you then compare with same map in 886 which shows area of Danelaw. What has happened?
On the maps of Europe and can you colour and label the countries that the Vikings came from and where they settled.
Once you have done that can you create a timeline to show key events that led to the establishment of Danelaw.
Create a storyboard to show how the Vikings took control of North –East England.
